Last November, when I was in Boston for a conference, I saw tons of people wearing coats with this logo:
I thought, hmmm, seems like a popular brand, and the coats look cute and super warm. Maybe I should get one? When I got back to Philly I started noticing lots of people with them here, too. So, I looked them up online and found out THEY COST OVER $900.
Look, I'm not opposed to spending a decent amount of money on a coat in the Northeast when you're going to wear it all the time, November-March (April this year!) but NINE HUNDRED DOLLARS???? That's insane. But the thing is, so many people have them! Aaron and I have an ongoing game called Spot the Canada Goose every time we're walking around the city together. It seems like a good tenth of the people in Philadelphia own one of these coats. My question is, HOW? Was there a free giveaway like the City Sports shirts everyone also seems to have? Was there a major sale at Boyd's? Is there a cart selling knock-offs outside Anthropologie at Rittenhouse Square? Is there a scholarship program for people in need of Arctic-level cold protection?
I feel like Erin on The Office after she met Holly:
I just don't get it.
